A very cool animation that gives some perspective on how small objects get. (Picture below is just for reference, must use link to get it to work. Click on the button and slide it to the right to zoom down)

What is really wild... once you get to the carbon atom we aren't done, we can continue to drill down into the single atom and it becomes like its own universe with Protons, neutrons, electrons, quarks and more. And, of course, when we zoom out from the coffee bean we enter our known world, our solar system, our galaxy, our known universe and more. It seems we live in a world that is infinite in BOTH directions! Amazing.
